Without doubt, the Marriott has beautiful grounds - starting from the moment you drive in, there is a beautiful canopy, the huge swimming pool faces the mountains and ocean, etc - the view is just absolutely splendid.
Let's move to the rooms - they are very outdated. I know a lot of the previous reviews talk about the Marriott timeshare, and i have no doubt that their timeshares are in great shape. But their ordinary hotel rooms leave a lot to be desired. At first they booked us in a small room facing the garden and there were stains on their ceiling, the bathtub didn't drain and the bathroom smelled gross - it was because they are still using cloth shower curtains. I complained to the front desk and they upgraded us to a suite, facing the pool. Yes, this room was nicer, but the bathrooms still used cloth shower curtains - i think the last time i saw cloth shower curtains was at Ramada Inn - seriously, Marriott needs to get with the times.
So even though the room was more spacious, the bathrooms stank and they just need to upgrade to glass doors - that will help with the odor. I spent 60,000 Marriott points to stay here for 2 nights and wouldn't do it again.
